7 Things Your Socks Reveal About You

7 Things Your Socks Reveal About You

Most people would consider socks to be one of the most under-appreciated clothing items out there, but you don’t have to be part of that majority anymore! With the launch of Philosockphy, a brand new sock subscription service, it’s time to finally start paying attention to your socks, and let them do all the talking for you. Whether you want them to reveal your personality, your style or even your life philosophy, these 7 things your socks tell people about you will help you choose what you wear each day with pride and confidence!

1) Life Philosophy

Would you like to work for someone else, or would you rather work for yourself? What drives your passion? Do you care about success or significance? What’s your leadership style? These are some of the questions we ask ourselves when determining our life philosophy. Our philosophy is one of a handful of things that make us unique. It can be difficult to pinpoint a single category that accurately captures your outlook on life, but socks seem as good a place as any to start. In fact, it turns out they’re a pretty great way to get inside someone’s head—so much so that there are several companies offering sock subscriptions based on personality type (including Philosockphy). But don’t take my word for it.

2) Fashion Sense

When it comes to socks, you have many fashion choices to make. If you want to keep your sock purchases in-house, consider subscribing to a Philosockphy.com/collections/socks-club">sock of the month club like Antimatter Clothing's Star Trek sock subscription or Happy Socks. If you don't want to subscribe but still want socks that reflect your style, try out a company like Philosockphy. We offer monthly subscriptions for socks featuring designs from top artists as well as our own line of exclusive limited edition prints and products! Or if you’re a mix and match person with no time for unique socks, we even have plain colors available on Amazon so you can mix and match yourself!

3) Hobbies

As a sartorial accessory, socks have some of our earliest childhood memories attached to them. We all remember digging through our sock drawers when we were kids, comparing colors and patterns. Sure, some of us outgrew that habit as we got older—but for many of us it never went away. As adults, whether or not your interest in socks is related to fashion or function or comfort (or just pure nostalgia), taking a look at what you wear can reveal a lot about your personality and character. Are you really down with matching everything? Do stripes get you hyped? Is comfort more important than style?

4) Personality Type

Just as astrology can reveal a lot about a person based on their star sign, socks can tell you all sorts of things about your personality, too. Do you like to wear bold colors or choose understated tones? Are you a fan of patterned socks or do you prefer something simple? If you decide to switch up your sock selection every month with one of our sock subscriptions, for example, it’s time to rethink that kind of effortless look and admit that underneath it all there’s a careful planner wanting to express their true self!

5) Body Language

Here’s a seemingly trivial but telling example of what our socks say about us: how we wear them. Here are two examples of how to wear socks to convey very different messages: First, you could wear socks with lots of crazy designs and colors—what we call Philosockphy. This is a fun look that lets everyone know you’re not taking life too seriously (which is a good thing). And second, if you wear matching or similar-colored socks every day, it shows a very different side of yourself—you’re probably more conservative and concerned with staying in line with society.

6) Interests
